Season 2, Episode 18

Verona, Italy

Everyone knows Verona, Italy as the romantic setting for Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, but Samantha discovers it's also one of Italy's most "Roman" cities with an ancient coliseum that instead of staging gladiator fights today presents elaborate al fresco productions by the Verona Opera Company. The city is the perfect size for Samantha to explore by bicycle, and she stops long enough for some people watching and cappuccino sipping at a colorfulpiazza. She also tests her taste buds (and her courage) on a local specialty - horse meat, and uncovers a letter-writing club that keeps the spirit of Romeo and Juliet alive today.
